    Renault megane ii break carpc

    Hello, i am from Portugal and i will show here my carpc setup.
    It took me long time to think about this project because i wanted the things as clean as possible. I remove the original head unit that come with the car and used the double DIN space to insert a lilliput 7" touch screen. To colect the hardware an installing took me almost a YEAR, that's because I only could work on the week ends.

    I would like to thank all you people from this site as i have learned a lot from the experiences i saw here.

    So here is the list of the components:

    Mobo: Intel ATOM Mini ITX;
    RAM: 1 Gb;
    Sound: Onboard VIA;
    Case: Voom PC;
    PSU: M2-ATX;
    Speakers: Original car speakers; for now i am satisfied with it;
    Amp: SONY XPLOD 50W rms 4 channel;
    Front End: I am almost finishing from writing my own FE, but for now i am using most IcT and FreeIce;
    GPS: USB G.MOUSE;
    GPS Software: Igo8PC;

    Now some pics of the hardware:

    Mobo


    Screen


    PSU


    GPS



    I have to say that the thing is running very smoothly with any issues, and i am very satisfied with the final result!

    Later I will post more pics of the work.

    Thanks

    Ok here are then some pics of the install:

    The location of the screen on the center console. Note: The center console is very easy to remove, it's just 4 bolts and it's off.


    The case and apm location in the bag


    The first fitting of the screen with fiberglass. The Megane console is perfect for a 7" screen!


    And now the screen already installed














    And that's it! Unfortunately i didn't take any pictures during the hard work installation.

    Thanks

    Is there a site that offers for every car model a tutorial to remove the facade (head unit)?

    You did the job very clean. Respect.

    Im just about to buy a Megane 2005 myself. A bit larger than yours but it has the same front console where the double din radio is. Ill remove that and put a screen there.
